i always get disconnected (i can only go online for at most an hour, the least is 2 minutes) and i have to restart my pc just to connect again.. i tried calling the dsl company & told me i have to use a microfilter... i am already using a splitter (isn't it the same thing as microfilter?) i asked someone & told me it's probably my LAN card: i'm using CNet PRO200WL PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter, could it be this???

angelslacker, Welcome to Geekstogo


Splitters incorporate filters, but there are ocassions where you need more filters.

Can you hear noise on any of your phone lines when you are connected?

Make a call to your line while you are connceted. what happens?

Are the disconnects associated with incoming phone calls?

Best regards,

When using DSL, you must have a FILTER attached to every telephone jack in your house that has a phone attached to it..

It goes on the phoneline ONLY !!
